Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project supported the Worcester Roots Project’s effort to build an aquaponic greenhouse at Stone Soup Community Center by designing a greenhouse and prototyping a modular aquaponic growing system. The team collaborated with Worcester Roots and Technocopia to develop a vision for the greenhouse project, evaluate options and determine appropriate designs for the system. We proposed a design for a wooden greenhouse with several growing systems using cheap, readily available materials, and successfully built a prototype growing system that to be by a future cooperative incubated by Worcester Roots. This project will enable growing local, fresh food in the City of Worcester and provide a starting point for developing a cooperative food business.
